Just experienced my first overflow during fermentation. Not too bad, I caught it pretty early I think. This is my first batch since early spring!
Had been way too hot all summer so did not brew anything. I’ve had stuff to do a Kolsch all summer but never could find the time or cooperation of the weather!.
Anyway, made a stirplate during the downtime, and a starter last thursday. Was on the plate for several days and brewed on Sunday. I think I pitched way more than necessary for the 5 gal batch!
My guess is all that yeast took off and had no where else to go but out! Last night I installed a blowoff tube and it was bubbling like a punctured innertube! This mornings check it was still going strong but no more overflow.
I hope this means a nice beer more quickly! :cheers:
